Question

Is there automatic over-speed protection at all relevant London Overground terminal stations (such as Dalston Junction, New Cross, Clapham Junction, and now Enfield Town and Chingford)?

Does that include Euston and Liverpool Street? Does that include when there is already a short train in the platform?

All of London Overground uses Network Rail signalling principles, which have been developed and improved over decades to ensure the highest standards of safety across the rail network.

These principles provide for over-speed protection to control the risk of trains going too fast.
